BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Everybody remembers the popular Nokia 3310, the star of the 2000s. The company decided to bring some joy to the nostalgic fans and presented a modern version of the phone at this year’s Mobile World Congress, which quickly became the star of the show. Now, this version has been launched in the UK.
Nokia 3310 was first released in September 2000, when it sold 126 million devices after the introduction. Everybody who lived during this period knows how 3310 was the phone of their generation, so Nokia decided it should make a comeback.
Snake is pre-installed on the device
Therefore, they devised the modern 3310, which is already available in the UK. For a price of £49.99 ($65), you can get a smaller 3310, but with modern features to fit the time and not come out as a completely useless device which should appeal only to nostalgia-stricken people.
First of all, you probably miss old Nokia phones because you miss Snake, the game of the 2000 generation. The company couldn’t design a remake of an old school phone without Snake, so the game comes pre-installed on the device.
The modern 3310 comes with impressive features
The other features of the phone are also more advanced than we would have thought back then. It will run on a Nokia Series 30+ software, displayed on a screen with 2.4-inch QVGA resolution. The phone even comes equipped with a camera of 2 megapixels, and you can add a microSD card.
It comes with a limited internet capability, namely 2.5G, but you can still surf on a mini Opera browser. So far, it might not sound impressive, but the real deal with this phone is battery life. HMD, the manufacturer, revealed the new 3310 can last for 31 days on standby, offering around 22 hours of talk time. Compared to today’s smartphones, this is extremely impressive.
The phone was released yesterday in the UK. If you are interested, you can find it in three more colors apart from the classic dark blue, and feed your nostalgia with the modern version of your childhood’s phone.
